Workbench does not allow users to select where segmentation should occur. This is often a problem. Uwe Sprengart has kindly provided a solution to this important functionality issue and given permission to post it. It is a macro as below. If you do not know how to add a macro to Word, will help with Word 2003 and earlier.

' Macro by Uwe Sprengart
If Selection.Range = "" Then Exit Sub
With ActiveDocument.Bookmarks

End With

Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("tw4winMark")
Selection.TypeText Text:="{0>"
Application.Run MacroName:="Normal.EditPaste.MAIN"
Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("tw4winMark")
Selection.TypeText Text:="<}0{><0}"
